PSXE Poll Update: Red Dead Redemption Tops Priority Lists
So if you're not already playing and loving >Red Dead Redemption, you most certainly intend to purchase it, which is good news for Rockstar and Co.
Of the nearly 1500 who answered the poll, 1/3 say they own and adore the open-world sandbox Western, another 1/3 say they fully intend to buy the game soon, and only a very small number say it didn't live up to expectations. Some said it wasn't their thing but in comparison to the overall love shown for RDR, it's almost insignificant. This past week has seen the emergence of a legitimate Game of the Year contender as it has met with considerable critical acclaim and has proven to be a financial blockbuster, so perhaps these results shouldn't be surprising. After this mammoth success, we're wondering if Rockstar intends to continue this franchise; we had the relatively average Red Dead Revolver ("relatively" in comparison to RDR; the game was actually decent) but now, shouldn't another "Red Dead" be inevitable? Or maybe they should focus on a new exploration-based title of a similar structure but different theme? After GTAIV and RDR, they've obviously got this style of game down pat...
Anyway, this week, we want to know if Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops appeals to you. We don't have a ton of CoD lovers around here but with the news that we'll get a robust single-player campaign, plus the inclusion of a Vietnam setting and a kick-ass trailer...well, it might have changed your minds. Let's find out.
